The Look: Jewel Tones

//This skirt was one of my Black Friday purchases and I’m in love with it! The color is great and the length is just right for me to wear it with heels. Long, maxi skirts are on trend this fall and there are lengths and designs to fit every shape and style! Here are few inspiration photos:

The Look: Golden Child

//It’s been a busy, busy week and I’m glad the weekend is finally here!! Here is a late workwear look and my first time wearing my new animal print bag I purchased from QVC. I LOOOVEEE this bag and I’ll definitely be wearing it a lot this winter! I’d never shopped on before, but that all changed when I received a gift card for my birthday. Designers such as Rachel Zoe, Issac Mizrahi, the Kardashians, and many more have their lines on the website. Definitely a great place to add to your online shopping list!

**I’m also wearing a new half-wig I purchased for when I need to do some protective styles for my hair. I’ll do a post on it soon!

Work Wear Wednesday!

//I purchased this dress a few months back and wore it without a sweater to an event, and decided to pair it with a bright cardigan and wear it to work. I purchased the cardigan at Express on the way to an event (ok…bingo at my grandma’s church!) because I always tend to get cold when indoors. I have plenty of black and white sweaters, and now I’m trying to get some more color ones in my closet. (Building My Wardrobe!)

No..this is not an office! lol

My Statement Necklaces

//I can’t express how much I love statement necklaces! Here is a quick post on the main pieces I have in my collection. I try to buy different colors, though I do tend to gravitate towards gold more than silver accents. I recommend that all fashionistas have at least 1 – 2 statement necklaces in their jewelry collection. And by “statement” I don’t mean that it has to be a huge necklace that takes up your whole upper body! But one that speaks to your unique style and makes people stop and say “I LOVE your necklace, where did you get it!”

I received an email asking which stores I recommend for great, reasonably priced accessories. A few stores I suggest (some are Houston specific, others are not):

1. Francesca’s Collections

2. Sam Moon Trading Co.

3. Charming Charlie

4. Aldo Accessories

5. Express **Today Express is having a sale – 40% off all accessories!!I’m on my way when I finish this post! 🙂

6. Ann Taylor

7. Arden B
